This special RS 7 will debut at the upcoming New York Auto Show and will begin arriving at dealerships in early summer.

MSRP including destination and delivery is $146,045.

The biggest rivals of the RS 7 are the BMW M6 Gran Coupe and the Mercedes-Benz CLS63 AMG.

"The Audi exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition exemplifies just some of the personalization options that are possible through our Audi exclusive program", said Filip Brabec, Director of Product Planning, Audi of America. "The combination of our most powerful RS model ever and the added customized elements make this a truly special car to drive and to behold."

The Audi exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition combines all of the performance of the 560 horsepower RS 7 including the DRC suspension with elements of the exclusive customization program. The Black Valcona leather seats have the RS specific honeycomb stitch in Crimson Red matching the safety belts of the same color. Additional Crimson Red stitching can be found on the dashboard, gear shifter boot, center and door armrests as well as along the center console. The Crimson Red accents combine with the carbon fiber inlays to further amplify the performance character of the Audi exclusive RS 7 dynamic edition.

The exterior is highlighted by Tornado Red brake calipers with RS 7 logo and 21-inch Gloss Black wheels. Carbon fiber splitter, diffuser and carbon fiber engine cover further underline the performance character of the exclusive RS 7. Four exterior colors are available to complement the exclusive design elements: Ibis White, Suzuka Gray metallic, Daytona Gray pearl, Phantom Black pearl.

The DRC system utilizes three-stage adjustable dampers that are hydraulically cross-linked and integrated into the Audi drive select system along with the standard rear sport differential for maximum performance driving. Dynamic steering adapts the steering boost and ratio to allow for more precise handling.

Same Twin-Turbo 4.0-Liter V8 Engine

The five-door coupe is fitted with the twin-turbo 4.0 Liter TFSI V8 engine, producing an astounding 560 hp that launches the RS 7 from 0-60 mph in just 3.7 seconds.

At low to medium loads and engine speeds - with its innovative cylinder on demand technology - the RS 7 deactivates cylinders 2, 3, 5 and 8 by closing their valves via electromechanical actuators. The 4.0 Liter TFSI engine runs in four-cylinder mode, providing up to 15% better fuel efficiency, while the active engine mounts remove any changes in vibration between eight and four-cylinder modes. Innovative solutions such as thermal management and cylinder on demand enable the RS 7 to achieve a respectable EPA estimated MPG of 16 city/27 highway/19 combined. The RS 7 is not subject to a gas guzzler tax.
